Wow Terrry - a wedding is always exciting news ! I agree with Suziquzie that you'll be a great MIL ! My sister who's son got engaged a couple of months ago always says the hardest thing is the fine line between not interfering but giving advice when needed (they're only 23) She's fortunate in that she gets along very well with her future DIL !
Congratulations !

[quote=LPBeier;642947]I had to work later than usual yesterday and didn't get home until almost 10. I was thinking in my head all the things I had to do....make the border's lunch and coffee for today, fold and put away the three loads of laundry SIL did for me, write up my list for today's work and get out the food and utensils I needed to take, etc.

My little celebration? DD and SIL folded the laundry, did coffee and lunch and DD even did the list up for me (she has been helping in my business for a few years now) and SIL filled my basket with everything that wasn't refrigerated! They also went to the store and bought some groceries..... with their own money!!!!!

Woohoo, LP.......they must have heard Momma Vesuvius rumbling in the distance.........you need to rumble more.......... they sound like very wise offspring indeed.......

Congratulations. As one on the recieving end of a great mother in law, my advice is to be yourself and let DIL be herself. It won't be too difficult if they have been together for 6 years.

Thanks. It was very small, just us, the witnesses, and the Sheriff. But, a great time.
